    Budget FR/DH fork recs?

    Hello fellow MTBr's!

    I am looking for a DH or FR fork, single crown, 150mm travel...would like to know what everyone is using and get some recommendations. I do not have the money to go out and get a super nice Fox...but a mid-level Fox or upper level Rock Shox would be what I am looking for...

    Currently, I have a Rock Shox rear shock that I love and a Suntour on the front that is 150mm with lock out...and I love them both...but the Suntour I know is not that great and will not last as long...both are stock on a GT full suspension...

    Let me know what you recommend!

    Thx
    experience life

    Trek RSS, GT Force FS, Diamondback Podium (Commuter)

    On a budget of what?
    I might get slated, but I started on some Marz DJ forks, The only adjustments were made by changing the spring and oil viscosity, and after a few months I got them pretty dialled.
    Looking around there are a number of RS Domain's going cheap.
    If you have a 1.5 headtube then look at chainreaction, they are doing silly deals on 1.5 steerer forks!

    Rockshox Domain 160 u-turn +1
    or Rockshox Pike might be worth checking out

    I just sold a rebuilt 08 Domain 302 with new oil and seals with one ride on them after the build plus an additional coil for $150. Deals can be had on that fork and for the money it is amazing

    If you are willing to spend a little more you can save a ton of weight and get added performance.

    You can find used RS lyrik's for $300 or so. get a solo air and then you can lower it to 150.

    if you can go a little lighter than you can get a 150 dual air revelation for around $300. They are really light to (around 4 lbs)

    Domains are a good option if you are a super limited budget but If you can afford the extra little bit i think its worth it to upgrade just for weight savings alone.

    Just got a usd Domain for $150 (to replace my blown 66.). Love it so far.

    (love the 66, if I find the part I need for it, I'll use it again)
